diller relationship, there are a couple of questions that come to mind. the first is whether the obama administration will continue this foreign-policy pivot toward the pacific. it is my sense the general consensus is, yes, the administration will continue to prioritize and state -- the focus policies. the second is the extent which latin america as a region is factoring into the u.s. focus on the pacific. some countries in the region are certainly benefiting from the trade arrangements that i have mentioned, but what about the rest of the region? are we releasing much in the wake of strategic integration in the western hemisphere in an effort to were fully engaged asia? i think it is important to note that latin american countries certainly are not waiting for the united states to engage the pacific to deepen the relations across the pacific. we have several regions, a series of bilateral trade agreements between china and countries in the region, the two in other asian countries and latin american countries, and other recent cooperation between china and regional organizations. latin

more nuclear weapons. can we really afford to do that? >> it's the united states and russia who have 90% of the world's arsenal of nuclear weapons do continue to make the deep cuts that started during reagan, that obama has built up, that president obama now in his next term could make with the russians, significant credible cuts in, then the rest of the nuclear states will join a process that will make it much more difficult for any other state to acquire weapons and for any state that has weapons not to join that process. we believe that is the only way, global zero believes that's the only way, to shift from our current course towards disaster to one which promises a more peaceful world. >> queen noor, great to have you here, valerie plame, you as well. the website is globalzero.com. appreciate it. thank you. >>> coming up, you're about to meet the people who are about to become u.s. citizens live on our plaza. into their work, their name on the door, and their heart into their community. small business saturday is a day to show our support. a day to shop at stores owned by our frien

of the key states. even if we want it turns out the electoral vote count would've gone to president obama. we lost by two points in ohio and recall back in 2004, when john kerry lost to george bush, he would often say both publicly and to me on the floor of the senate, but perhaps the people could fit in the ohio state stadium i'd be president today. so was a very narrow but to read. i do think there are some reasons that are almost technical to some of you understand well. these folks in silicon valley who are good at social media and the democrat side were quite affect this. if you look at the numbers after the fact, the turnout for democrats among their base was better than we expect it and i would say even better than they expected based on their polling and sampling. so you know, they did a better job than we did in getting voters to the polls. and if i got fewer votes than john mccain in ohio still came within two points. the technology included the so-called orca system. many of you have read about that in the last couple of days, which was the republican get out the vote technology to
amendment that goes beyond allowing medical marijuana in their state. it legalizes pot for purely recreational use among adulls 21 and over. in this past election more coloradoians voted for legalizing pot than for president obama. >> we have had medical marijuana in colorado now for almost three years. what we have seen from that is tremendous amounts of revenue. that's why we've seen so many people vote to legalize marijuana here in colorado because the sky did not fall under medical marijuana. >> reporter: colorado's medical dispensaries already offer a wide range of pot products: candies, cookies, even soft drinks. the chef's special elixir is made of butter or olive oil infused with marijuana. >> i'm going to put two teaspoons of olive oil. >> reporter: in terms of the strength? >> equivalent of 3 1/2 to four joints. >> reporter: with quality marijuana going up to $450 an ounce it is way more expensive than truffles or caviar or foie gras but scott says it's worth every penny for the effect if not the flavor. if you taste any of the can bus? >> i'll tell you right now. none w

a it took to re-elect president barack obama. millions of women's votes who helped us elect a record number of women to the congress of the united states. as you look forward understand that you are looking into the future. the future of empowerment of women in america. you saw some of these faces yesterday among the new members elect. i said then that they were part of the most diverse caucus in the history of the world, the first time that a parliamentary body would have a party when a majority of women and minorities as its strength, and we're very, very proud of that. said yesterday we did not have a majority but we have the gavel. excuse me. we don't have the gavel. [laughter] we don't have the -- we have something more important. we have unity. we do not have the gavel. we do not have the majority. but we have unity. i think our caucus this morning demonstrated that very clearly. so i come here with my sisters. when i came to congress 25 years ago, there were about 23 members of congress who were women out of 45. just think of that. 11 -- 12 democrats, 11 republicans. something like t
states senate in 2010. at the time, president obama made what i thought was a perfectly sensible observation. he said in 2010, with the economy growing so slowly, with economic growth down around 3%, which was producing high unemployment because the economy wasn't growing fast enough, he said, it makes no sense to raise taxes during that kind of pro jill economic recovery. -- fragile economic recovery. which makes me wonder what has changed between now and 2010 except for the fact that economic growth is even slower, the economy is even worse today than it was in 2010. president obama has said, contrasted -- contrasted with what he said in 2010, he said, raising taxes will help som sole our long-term debt problems. he says raising taxes will help us solve our long-term debt problems. but it's hard to take that argument seriously if you look at it closely. first, according to the president's own treasury department, tax increases he's advocating would generate about $85 billion a year in new net revenue. these tax increases would generate about $85 billion in new net revenue. by c
